Another Reason to Avoid Prison

phil-spector.jpgPeople who have anything at all to do with the music business, from a minimum wage disc jockey to a record company president, all have one thing in common: people want you to listen to their songs. It goes on constantly. Now it turns out that even serving time for murder doesn't get you away from wannabe stars.

Legendary music producer Phil Spector is serving a life sentence (for the murder of Lana Clarkson) at Corcoran State Prison in California. Charles Manson, also serving a life sentence, is living at the same prison. Manson has let it be known that he would like to meet with Spector, so they can spend some time writing songs together.

Convicted cult leader Charles Manson has reached out to convicted music producer Phil Spector, suggesting that the two jailbirds collaborate on pop songs. Both men are serving life sentences in central California's Corcoran State Prison.

Manson contacted Spector shortly after the producer arrived, dispatching a guard with a note. "[Manson] said he wanted him to come over to his [cell]," Spector's wife, Rachelle, told the New York Post. "He said he considers Philip the greatest producer who ever lived."


So far, Spector has not replied to Manson. He's got plenty of time.

They could start a band called The Killers, though I think that may be taken already.

I think Charles Manson and Phil Spector are good reasons to want to avoid prison.
But that's just me.

First of all, Manson and Spector are not at the same prison. Manson is at Corcoran State Prison and Spector is at the Substance Abuse Training Facility Corcoran, aka Corcoran 2. Spector's wife needs to get her information straight before she starts running off at the mouth. There is no way these two inmates will meet up. At least not here on earth.

"Legendary music producer Phil Spector is serving a life sentence (for the murder of Lana Clarkson)..."

... not Kelly Clarkson, huh?

Hmm.

Phil certainly looks nutty in that pic.

"Phil, you always go over the top. Just like you did with Let It Be. Got to dial it down sometimes you know? Sometimes just take it easy."
